Join New York Times best-selling author David Finch and his wife, Kristen, for Happily Ever Asperger, an exciting new seminar on neurologically mixed marriages. Building upon lessons from their previous seminars, David and Kristen share their own Best Practices for a happy marriage, then turn the idea completely on its head. In Happily Ever Asperger, you will discover, as partners, that your happiness and fulfillment comes from YOU, not from your partner (which can be a tricky pill for any partner to swallow... just ask Dave!) Packed with relevant, actionable strategies for being a better partner, taking responsibility for your own happiness, and clearing up your thoughts and expectations, this seminar is a must for anyone in love with a baffling person—and who isn't? David and Kristen will be available after the talk to sign copies of David's book.

Communication in any type of relationship can be challenging. Now add to that the difficulties and frustrations when each member of a couple appears to have very different:
This workshop is designed to address the communication issues in relationships in which one member of the couple identifies as having Asperger's or a related autism spectrum profile and the other member does not.
Using a combination of action methods, group members will experience what it might feel like to be in each other's shoes and to learn an alternative approach to communication from that perspective.
This workshop will also be offered as an 8-week group in September and October.
